During the entire week there have been
numerous and unusually beautiful dis
plays of that most mysterious of all phe

the sky has been literally covered with

"Billy," who performs all sorts of work

cared for on Thursday afternoon last by
one of the proprietors. Being drunk and
noisy and "bound to fight,'' he was softly

behind the cooling influence of a grated
cell than which he thought there could
be no greater sell.
The week just past has been hot,
though the severity of the warmth has
been somewhat lessened by several pleas

and, as $hey agitate the cooling fan or
quaff the never-satisfying soda, placidly
but firmly persist in agitating the world
with entirely new observations upon that
prolific subject the beat.

During the school term just closed J
R. Clagne has been employed as teacher

are inscribed, as doners, the names of
Nellie Green, Alice Green, Alta Lammun

Fashion never rests, and within the
past lew days anew style of ladies' hats
has appeared which is decidedly a great
improvement on the Dolly Tarden. In ap
pearance it resembles a straw wash basin
with the sides run through an imperfectly
working fluting machine. TheHvy clings
to the mouldering wall," over the wearer's
leit ear, a bit ofpiuk silk under the basin
adds much to the beauty of the tout ensem

nose of the wearer below.
Some people are boors by nature and
some by education. Those whose natural
powers have been developed in this re
spect are doubly unfortunate. The men
we came near writing eentiemen our
fortunately corrected ourself in time who
were present at the Grant and Wilson
meeting last Monday evening and per
sisted in smoking most villainous cigars
to the great annoyance not only ot the la
dies present but of all around, must have
belonged to this latter class. The use of
tobacco is undoubtedly innocent enough
per se, but its abuse in public gatherings,
even when held in the open air, is so en
tirely inexcusable that we doubt if any
one can be found who would-even attempt
At last the burglars have put in a bona-
fide appearance, and one or two places are
congratulating themselves that the visita
tions of those experimentors onthemyste
ries of other people's money-boxes resulted
in so small loss to the owners. Wednes
day night the Flour and Feed Store of the
Painesville Mills was entered through the
back window and about one dollar taken
from the drawer; and on the same eve
ning the residence of D. W. Mead Esq. was
isited, probably by the same parties, and
his pants, vest and hat taken, together
with about four dollars in change in one of
bis pockets. Geo. W.Payne, a son-in-law
oi Mr. Mead, mourns the loss of a pair of
fine boots, although he himself confesses
that his sorrow is probably bootless.
Thkre is an inherent willingness,human
nature to be humbugged and there are few
people to whom it is not a pleasure to "be
fooled . to the top of their bent." Other
wise it would be difficult to explain the
patronage bestowed upon those played out
travelling hucksters who seek to inveigle
money from the public's pocket without
rendering any fair equivalent and with no
better excuse than that they can. During
the week another new enterprise of this
kind has made its appearance and people
are promised all kinds of rare bargains
from which they may select such as they
please for the "small sum of one dollar."
The business in itself may be legitimate
enough but its effect is so bad upon the
interests of small communities and the
coraptition so unfair to local dealers that
it ought to be compelled to liberally con
tribute, by means of very high licenses,
to the public treasury, even if not entirely
The fourth annual re-union of the So

At the last meetinsr it was decided that

"Vetting: Ready for the Fair."
Our County Fair is soon to takeplace,
and our farmers and those who are other
wise interested, in that for their efforts
alone can success be hoped for, ought not
to forget the great incentives which have
been put forth by the present managers in
order to secure their earnest co-operation
To be sure it was found necessary to cut
down the premium list and even to strike
out some classes altogether, in order to
pay their printing bills, about which we
have before written, but then the estab
lishment which reaps.the profit is generous
enough to write up semi-occasional puffs,
and this policy has ever been found so
eminently successful tbat it needs no
word of commendation at the present time
By-the-way, neither Mr. Jennings nor
Mr. Blish have ever yet explained how it
is that the printing tor the association has
been let regularly to one certain establish!
ment at prices from twenty-five to fifty
per cent, higher than the same work could
be procured for elsewhere. Of course, it is
nobody's business yet, after all, those who
aremade to feel the results, in the shape of
reduced premium lists, cannot but experi
ence some little curiosity upon the subject
Why not explain it SQ that all may fully
appreciate the "energy, enterprise and
discretion," especially "discretion," "of
the agriculturists who comprise t he pres
ent Board of Officers?"
Republican Counter-Charge.
The Liberals having given vent to their
Greeley and Brown enthuasism in the
gr od old-fashioned way by means of can
non and fireworks and speechifying-
was not to be expected but that the Re
publicans would feel it necessary to go
and do likewise, if for no better reason
thivn to show that they were not to be out
done by any political party living. Ac-
cordingly pn Friday evening last, the first
Grant and AVilsbn Rally in tfiis place was
The evening was pleasant, the cannon
was "loud," and the band played, as it al
ways does, in "such a witching way" that
the park around the speakers stand was
soon well filled with a mixed assemblage
of ladies and gentlemen, all of whom
seemed pleased with themselves if not
decidedly enthuasiastio upon the political
issues about to be settled.
Hon. AVin. L. Perkins of this place, Hon
John K. French of Washington, and Hou
L. S. Sherman of Ashtabula, were the
speakers, and while lack of space prevents
anything (ike a rcpifineortheir remarks we
can yet' soy that all three delivorpd good
addresses so that all were attentively
listenedd to by those present.
Taken altogether the meeting was prob
ably a success and would be so regarded
by all save by members of the opposing
political organization. Indeed the only
person who appeared at all dissatisfied
was Mr. C. C. Jennings and even his dis
quietude might be attributed more to the
fact, that he was led to "speak in meeting"
than to anything that could be said to. be
long to the gathering proper.
Colored Grant Club.
We are requested to announce that there
will be a public meeting of the colored
citizens of this place on the Park, this
Friday evening, or, in case the weather
should prove unfavorable, at Child's Hall,
commencing at a quarter before eight
o'clock. The object of the meeting is to or
ganize a Grant and Wilson Club, and is
called by a committee here at the instance
of Mr. J. W. Wilson, of Lebanon, O., who
is now traveling through the country en
gaged in fighting the cause of the Republi
can Party. Mr. Wilson brings letters
from several prominent gentlemen, among
them the following from Mr. Corwinthe
son of Thomas Corwin :
Lebanon, May 0, 1872.
To Dr. J. Scott, ami all whom it May con
cern :
The bearer of this, Mr. J. W. Wilson,
who has been formerly engaged in organ
izing schools for the benefit of his adult
colored fellow citizens is now endeavoring
to organize Republican Clubs, throughout
the State, believing this to be the best
wav to concentrate thevotes of his brethren
in favor of the Republican party. Mr.
Wilson is wetl recommended by gentle
men who have Known mm from Doynooa
up to the present time and was at one time
in the employment of .my father where he
was a faithful, honest servant.

The Band Affaln.
As has been frequently intimated would
be the case, the dilatoriness of our citi
zens in re-engaging Professor Burt, has
resulted in the loss of our Cornet Band.
Tired of waiting for action which should
have been prompt and willing instead of
tardy and hesitating, the members hav e
dissolved their connection with the old or
ganization and, for the present at least,
our band may be numbered among the
things that were.
But as there is no great loss without
some small gain, so in tne present in
stance, although we have lost one band we
have gained another. Many of those com
posing the former organization have formed
a new one, which, made up as it is of the
best talent from the old band, is piepared
to furnish the best of music for political
meetings and for all other gatherings that
may need or desire their services. But as
this new "Union Band" is intended only
to exist through the campaign and is
strictly "business" it will neither assume
any of the obligations of the Cornet Band,
nor accept any of its liabilities. The re
sult is that while it is still possible to pro
cure music for any special occasion.
there will, nevertheless, be no Park con
certs nor any of the usual attendance
upon those numerous other occasions
when we have been accustomed to look
upon "the nana" as one 01 tne emei at
tractions. Indeed the existence ot the
"Union Band" at all is principally due to
the fact that the business engagements of
Prof. Burt are such to compel his remain
ing here until fall.
We understand' however, that if the old
band should be again re-organized the
present organization would probably be
merged into 'it so as to accept and fulfill
any and all uncompleted obligations.
Republican Convention.
The Republican Convention of this
county convened at 10 o'clock a. m. of last
Tuesday, at the Court House, and was
called to order by J. F. Schofield. A. L.
Tinker Esq. was elected as President, and
E. P. Branch, of Painesville, and L. A,

Note. The following communication

hardly prove sufficient. We mention this

Pueblo, August 1, 1872.
There are public sohools in every coun

and other places fine school houses. There
are, besides, in this town, a number of
private institutions of learning. There are

There are also good churches and schools
at Canon City and Colorado Citj, in the
counties adjoining pnehlo pounty on the
west and north, and at other more distant
points in Southern Colorado.
Fubelo is situated at a point where the
Denver and Santa Fee road crosses the
Arkansas; is the county seat of Pueblo
county, and the business center of South
ern Colorado. The population, which has
increased dnring the past year nearly one
hundred per cent, now amounts to nearly
two thousand inhabitants. On the first of
January last, the entertain published
full and valuable statistical exhibit of
Pueblo, showing that during the year 1871,
one hundred and seven private residences
were erected, involving a cost of nearly
$300,000. The express and passenger busi
ness at this point, far the same period of
time, amounteu to $43,000.00; - and the
transfers of real estate in the city and
county, to $265,351.50. Our mild winters

White men; however' low they maybe

here of more value than Indians. The
whites here are not under the control ot
Quaker agents, as is by some erroneously
supposed. If Indians behave themselves
we let them alone and give them kreatl

stealing, robbing and scalping, we shoot
them ; but Quaker agents, who are found
among them distributing arms or ammu

Our country is protected by military

to appear on dress-parade, and don't so

Across the Continent.
I remained in Santa Fe twelve days, in
vestigating the manners and customs of
the "greasers"; and my summing np
might be almost in the language of the
sailor who was shipwrecked in Patagonia:
"These people have no manners, and their
customs are disgusting." No, I am wrong
there. The Mexicans have "manners"
enough, but no morals. Taking them "big
and large," as sailors say, the people of
New Mexico, and especially Santa Fe,
are a charmingly polite, immoral, lazy,
nnprogressive, hospitable, kind, careless
ana unimprovable race. ine territory
contains about 80,000 native Mexicans,
divisible into three classes.: thegente fina,
or noble bloods, of whom there are about
fifteen families; the respectable middle
classes, who may possibly amount to two
thousand in all, and the "greasers," who
make up about ninety-five per cent, of the
whole. Taking out fifteen families it is
my solemn conviction that the projierty of
all the other Mexicans in tne Territory
will not average fifty dollars apiece. 1
thought Utah was the poorest part of
America before I came here, but the Mor
mons roll in wealth cmpared to the New
Mexicans, as to morals, wntcn is the
worst, polygamy or promiscuous concu
binage f that is a great moral question
which l am not competent to aeciae. l'eo
who have lived here many years confident.
ly assert that there are some, in fact a
number, or virtuous people among the
natives.- I hope that it is so. Let us take
it for granted and dismiss the subject.
Next to tne Mexicans are the pueblos.
who number some ten or twelve thousand
in the whole Territory, and are thought to
be slowly decreasing. This is attributed
to many different causes by different per
sons. I think it is largely owing to the
system of intermarriage pursued in each
Pueblo ("village"). The authorities have
assigned to eacn inaian I'ueoio a sort ot
reservation, generally six miles square,
as their towns are scattered in every part
of the Territory and mingled among the
Mexican towns. This makes of each Pue
blo an iasolated community, separated by
many miles of Mexican country from any
other Pueblo, and left to its own popula
tion exclusively ror society, rne Indians
of one Pueblo know little or nothing of
those ot anotner. jnany oi mem number
no more than two or three hundred inhab
itants each, and in this small number the
same families have married back and for
ward for hundreds of years, till every
member of the community is some akin to
every other member. Degeneration and
decay are tne inevitable results, t o speak
bluntly, the stock needs a new graft. This
"marrying in and in" is a Spanish cus
tom, also, and the Mexicans, who cannot
plead necessity, consider such marriages
ratner preieraoie.
Young American? wno race Mexican
wives sometimes discover this fact in a
rather ludicrous manner. In the small
towns every one seems to be some akin,
ana reiauonsnip is a great tmng witn tne
Mexicans, calling, of course, for extensive
hospitality. So the newly made wife
brings up a gang approximating to hun
dreds, and introduces the husband to her
primero, and her sequndo and her tereoro
(first, second and third cousins), till be is

Americans, which term includes all
whites, not of Spanish origin. There are
probably a thousand Jews in Santa Fe and
other large towns, exgaged in mercantile
pursuits. Besides these the "Americans"

Hungarians, r renca ana englishmen an
naturalized voters, however. All these
combined amount to some eight or ten
thousand, rne census mages no distinc
tion, of course, and so we have no perfect
ly authentic data. This class is just now
increasing rapidly, on account of the
mines and the anticipated railroad. New
Mexico is unquestionably rich in mines of
eoia ana silver, out it is aouotiui it tnis
native population would ever have found
it out.
The climate is very healthful. That of
Santa Fe is rather too cool for me. The-
nights, even in May, are too cool for me to
go out without a heavy coat, and the days
only temperate or moderately warm. But
those who are acclimated think the sum
mer climate of Santa Fe the most delight
ful in the world. The elevation of that
city is 7.000 feet above sea-level, so you
see it must be somewhat oreezey in the
winter. The population ot the city is set
at 6,000 stretched, J think, and evidently
not increasing, it seems to me nnpossioi'
that Santa Fe can ever be much of a
place. It is decidedly out of the direct
line of either of the three projected rail
roads, and is nanked both north and south
by projecting spurs of the mountains. The
Atlantic and Pacific Railroad enters the
Rio Grande valley by way of Golisteo
creek, some tnirty mites soutn or tne city

How is This for High ? Wm. Haydn,
of the Globe Mills, has just received the
First Premium on the best barrel of White
Wheat Flour at the Northern Ohio Fair,
held at Cleveland, Ohio, 1871. Premium,
a Silver Medal. This is indeed a triumph
for the Globe Mills. Some 30 or 40 of the
best mills in the west competed for this
medal, but there was no use, the old Globe
was put through a course of sprouts in
the early part of the season, and has been
turning out flour that wins friends of those
who use it once. Mr. Haydn employs
the best millers to be found, and has in
troduced all' the latest improvements,
consequently he has one of the best mills
in the United States. We are glad to see
him reap a reward for the liberal expen-
diture he has made on the Globe. -'Cast
thy bread upon the waters" if you want a
silver medal.

The close of the present week finds the money
market in great ease. Call loans being made at
from 23 per cent. Under this glnt of money at
the great money center Stocks have made a
further decline and Bonds have held their own,
owing no doubt to the reasons given in onr last
report. It is rumored that prominent gold spec
ulators have locked up from five to ten millions
of actual gold thereby creating a feeli ng of un
certainty in regard to the future of gold. A
vast amount of capital is said to be seeking in
vestment in Call Loans at above prices rather
than in permanent investments. This looks as
if investors are preparing to be ready when the
expected crash comes. The funding or the Na
tional pent is still an unsettled question, and at
mougn tne aiscussion oi tnis qnestion Is no
doubt at this time premature, still the time is
not far distant when it will become a very seri
ous question. Many persons skilled iu financial
matters think the next loan should be one of a
more permanent nature, and bearing interest
at 4H per cent, and above all else this should
be subscribed for and owned in this country. If
all the interest on our Nationl Debt could be
paid at home we should most certainly be in a
more prosperous condition thau we are at pres
A new scheme is on foot asking Congress to
pass a law rqrblding any National Bank from
loaning more than three times its Capital Stock
this of course applies only to the banks in large
cities where they have millions of deposits with
only a few hundred thousand dollars capital.
Should such a law pass it would be likely to have
the effect of doing away with the now almost
universal practice of the banks in New York,
paying interest on deposits.
Government Bonds are not likely to go much
higher, although holders are tenacious thinking
that if the election should result as they think
favorably, bonds would go still higher; while on
the other hand the foreign demand is weak in
vestors abroad think our presidential elections
are great convulsion and seriously prejudicial
to nnauolai operation.
The Stock market is very weak, indicating a
decline on the whole lists, excepting Wabash,
which as we prophesied still continues strong.
The bottom seems to be dropping entirely out of
isrte; it naving fallen over thirty cents dnring
the last six weeks. Lake Shore, contrary to gen
eral expectation has easily feUua below ninety
cents, as has alwC. Ul', I, and Northwest.

The flour market is still unchanged though
not quite so active as a week ago. Many of the
consumers or flour are using the new crop of
wheat which is now being thrashed and taken
to mill whenever the samples of it are dry
enough to grind . Millers also are beginning to
select the best aud driest of the new to make the
flour for their local trade.
Wheat has ruled higher throughout the week
and the trade is this grain is lively but the
market closes a little weaker owing to large re
ceipts, and our quotations remain unchanged.
Corn is dnfl and the market weak. We do not
revise our quotations.
Oats, good demand for old, which are scarce.
New oats are freely offered, but buyers are hold
ing off uutil they are in better condition.

This staple commodity has become so dull and
lifeless that it Is scarcely deserving of mention
as a vital element In the market. Judging from
the conduct of our Own buyers, the country is
poorly suppl ied with opportunities to sell at any
price, as we are Informed that agents have been
recalled and a general let-up inaugurated, on
the policy that the troublesome elements will
subside the sooner if left to themselves. The
prices which are offered here to-day are 6055c,
in which there appears little inducement to
farmers, and which succeed in attracting only a
very light business. There is little encourage
ment in the tenor of the eastern and foreign
markets, and although it is a serions question to
many of tho vital Interests of the country, tho
establishment of just aud uniform values for

Cleveland, O.,' August lO.'lSTa
The cheese market has been very regular dur
ing the past week. No changes have come to
light either in the tone of the market or prices.
Dealers have been generally anxious to do more
business, but factory men's ideas do not seem to
have been fully realized, as yet, and receipts
have been small and scattering. ' During the
past three or four days, better lots have been
purchased, and selling seems to i. becoming
more generally the rule among our country
friends, who have affairs all in their own hands,
so long as they choose to take the risk of control
ling them. Prime factory is readily taken from -wagons
atl010.iic, and dealers are for the pres
ent contenting themselves with the small mar
gin afforded in filling orders at lllc The
trade has, fortunately, been light, and the mar
ket has experienced no stress through absence
of stock from which to nourish trade. Shlppibg
eastward has not been practiced to any great ex
tent during the week, as there was little to en
courage speculation in that quarter, but rather
to check ventures, and operations have been
mostly confined to the regular order trade and
light chance sales.
We have little to note this week regarding the
Butter market. No changes of importance have
transpired, demand and prices remaining very
regular throughout. As may well be imagined
the receipts of choice are very light, and as a
consequence most is sold Immediately upon arri
val at a good figure, ranging from 18(fiiS0c. The
bulk of Butter being below the higheststandard,
realizes lower prices, but the market has not yet
been loaded beyond its capacity, and no consid
erable accumulations are feared by those most
interested. The prices during the week have
maintaiued a wide range for anything below
strictly first-class, and may be stated at ;12(gAtic,
although much has been sold below the former
figure, owing to lack of quality.
In the other markets there has been a rise dnr
